Get To Know The Six Pack Series: David Spencer

And now for the next character profile in my Six Pack series: David Spencer.

David is 18 years old, has brown eyes and a buzzcut. He has a muscular build and competes on the secondary school's track team, throwing the shot, discus and javelin. He is in a relationship with Stacy Sanders and knows that she is the person he wants to spend his life with. His parents were killed in a construction accident when he was young, so he values any close relationship he develops with another person.

David is shy and quiet, a contrast to his facial features and build that suggest he would be a gruff individual. I relate to David because I'm shy, too, and it sometimes takes me a while to warm up to people. Though David considers everyone in the Six Pack to be his friends, he sometimes wonders how much his relationship with those other than Stacy matter. But he is protective of them and others. He doesn't want to see anyone else get hurt.

As you would guess, he gains the power of super strength. That power, combined with his unwillingness to hurt anyone, sometimes made for an interesting dynamic. I thought it would be interesting to explore the idea of an individual who is physically strong but has a quiet demeanor about him. That made for an interesting dynamic, too. David may be powerful, but he's more like a big teddy bear.
